Collection Of Smoothies 

Navaratri beginnings from October 1st.

Navaratri is a festival dedicated to the worship of the Hindu deity Durga. The word Navaratri means nine nights in Sanskrit, nava meaning nine and ratri meaning nights. During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Devi are worshipped.

Many people observe fast these days. . Fasting people abstain from consuming meat, fish, eggs, alcohol, onions, garlic, dishes made with common salt or any kind of spice. Some people live only on milk, fruits and fruit juices for the entire length of fasting. Apart from tea, coffee and milk, sago and potato cooked with rock salt are extremely popular dishes among devotees observing partial fast. Milk products and dry fruits can also be consumed.

Smoothie is a thick beverage made from blended raw fruits and vegetables. It can be nutritious and continent meal replacement. So here is some delicious, filling and power packed smoothies and cooler  for your fasting days. I have combined all the smoothies in one post for your convenience. All are low calorie and some are dairy free.

Method

Squeeze out fresh juice of orange. You can use canned juice too. Grate the carrots and squeeze out the juice.

Take everything in a blender jar. Add ice cubes if you want. I have made it without ice and kept in fridge for an hour to get chilled smoothie. You can use frozen fruits too.

Blend on high speed until smooth and frothy.
Pour the mixture in a glass. Garnish with grape,apple slice, cherry or tutty fruity.

Beat the heat with this chilled yummy smoothie.
Enjoy…….
